Mor Karbasi, New Music Releases

Lucy Duran introduces a performance by Sephardic singer Mor Karbasi, and David Hutcheon and Jane Cornwell review the latest world music releases.

Lucy Duran welcomes to the studio the singer Mor Karbasi. Born in Jerusalem, but now living in the UK, Mor Karbasi sings Sephardic Jewish traditional songs, as well as performing her own material, informed by her Jewish, Moroccan and Persian roots. She has recently released her second album 'La Hija de la Primavera' ('Daughter of the Spring').
Lucy is also joined in the studio by the writers David Hutcheon and Jane Cornwell, to review some of the latest world music CD releases. These include Söndörgő: a family of tambura players from Hungary, and Fatoumata Diawara, a former actress who ran away from her home in Mali to pursue her musical career.
Producer: Sam Hickling.
